How to Calculate Reflected Power?
Reflected Power calculator uses Reflected Power of the Fiber = Incident Power*((Refractive Index of Core-Refractive Index of Air)/(Refractive Index of Core+Refractive Index of Air))^2 to calculate the Reflected Power of the Fiber, The reflected power of the fiber is a measure of the power of the signal that is reflected back towards the source due to discontinuities or impedance mismatches in the optical fiber. Reflected Power of the Fiber is denoted by P_{refl} symbol.
How to calculate Reflected Power using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Reflected Power, enter Incident Power (P_{o}), Refractive Index of Core (η_{core}) & Refractive Index of Air (n_{air}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Reflected Power calculation can be explained with given input values -> 35947.12 = 1.75E-06*((1.335-1.0003)/(1.335+1.0003))^2.
